Thanks, Camaleón. I found the report several days ago, but I did not
fully understand it. The symptoms I see are similar, except that
mounting manually with "mount -t vfat" does not work for me; mount
returns an error message that /dev/sdb1 does not exist, even though I
do see "sdb" in the output of dmesg.
Also, I do not understand how to "hack the FISINFO"; the report says:
"Then I hacked the FSINFO back to the standard value using
hexeditor. Linux automount started working and the Marantz
recorder was not adversely affected, still being able to read and
write the card with no problems."
Is this done by mounting the SD memory card with a external card
reader? And is this done with the Debian package "hexer"? I would
like to try this work-around.
